    Well, the secret is out.

    To quote the great philosopher of the '70's, Harry Callahan, "a man's got to know his limitations".

    It's mine.

    Back in Phoenix, I had time and the support to make a go of putting this car on the road but was out of work for an extended time. Up here, I really don't have the time and people i can get the advice to get it done. So the decision had to be made to sell the project and the tons of parts I assembled over 10+ years or just admit it wasn't going to get done sitting in my garage. Joel and I talked and he was kind enough to take it on. I'm grateful.

    I greatly admire you who can execute a car from the ground up.

    Joel pretty much has a free hand to build it. I'm not going to micromanage. I'm hoping he will post updates and things he discovers along the way so members can learn from this project's progress. It's in great hands and I trust his judgement.

    I shipped 6 footlockers of parts and 3 cardboard boxes along with the roller. There will be leftovers and I still have stuff here. As soon as Joel advises me he has everything he needs I'll offer what we don't need.

    Are you going to use the Original Fuel tanks or install a Mustang tank?

    We'll see what Nick has to say,as this car is going to be fuel injected it be simpler to use the Mutt FI tank than to go thru all the BS of dipping,coating , modifing of the stock ones a lot more to it than necessary. And plus the trunks all ready half removed!

    Joel will the spare go tiger style on the floor or does it depend if you switch to the mustang tank?
